Abstract The convers~on of Northern States Power Company's (NSP) Red Wing Qnd Wilmarth steam generators to fire refuse-derived fuel (RDF) is a unique project -- a retrofit repowering from coal to RDF is a first-of-a-kind. The use of the existing plant with the necessary modifications to the boilers has allowed NSP to effectively incinerate the fuel as required by Washington and Ramsey Counties. This paper covers the six-month start-up of Red Wing No.1, commencing in January 1987, and the operating results since the plant went commercial in June 1987. A preceding paper given at the 1986 Joint Power Generation Conference discussed the background, evaluations, and final designs of the conversion project (1). This presentation summarizes that background and presents operating issues, actual performance, and evaluations of how early design decisions turned out in actual operation.
